TSX/NYSE/PSE: MFC SEHK:945 

WATERLOO, ON, April 9, 2013 /CNW/ - Manulife Financial today announced an agreement with TELUS Health to extend their existing suite of e-Claims solutions by offering healthcare professionals a new method to simplify and accelerate the submission and reimbursement of extended healthcare claims. The eClaims web portal will compliment Manulife's plan member Online Claims Submission, a popular function of their Plan Member Secure Site.

The flexibility of the eClaims platform, combined with TELUS Health's commitment to improving patient experience, driving efficiency and expertise in electronic health records, ensures that Manulife plan members and allied healthcare providers will continue to benefit from the most innovative solutions that strive to achieve better health outcomes for all Canadians.

"Manulife has a long tradition of responding to customer needs when designing products and services. We are thrilled to introduce another method for submitting claims," said Sue Reibel, Senior Vice-President, Group Business Development, Manulife Financial. "It's important for us to bring our clients a solution that offers convenience but ensures the integrity of our claims adjudication process.  By partnering with TELUS Health we've found an ideal way of doing just that."

"At TELUS Health, we are committed to cultivating strong relationships with customers and providers across Canada to enhance the patient experience," said Luc Vilandre, Vice-President, Health Benefits Management, TELUS Health. "We are excited to be working with Manulife to deliver solutions that simplify processes, streamline communication among all parties and ultimately, bring real value to their plan members and sponsors, as well as the healthcare provider community."

The TELUS Health eClaims solution enables allied healthcare providers (including physiotherapists, chiropractors, vision care providers, as well as acupuncturists, registered massage therapists, naturopathic doctors, and others) to submit claims online on behalf of patients for an end-to-end electronic experience.
